We're not very consistent on '1.2' vs. '1.2.0' in since listings, but
that's probably worth a global cleanup closer to hard freeze.

This is a new command, so s/fdset_id/fdset-id/

Again, s/fdset_id/fdset-id/

And again.

Is it worth providing any additional information?  For example, knowing
whether the fd is O_RDONLY, O_WRONLY, or O_RDWR might be beneficial to
management apps trying to discover what fds are already present after a
reconnection, in order to decide whether to close them without having to
resort to /proc/$qemupid/fdinfo/nnn lookups.  It might even be worth
marking such information optional, present only when 'removed':false.

Conflicts with Luiz's error cleanups.  I'm not sure whether libvirt
needs to know this specific error, so I'd rather leave it generic for now.

More fallout from s/_/-/ in the QMP naming, throughout this file.
